Course Component
Based on the understanding of the human person as it is articulated in the Second Vatican Council's Gaudium et Spes and subsequent papal teaching, this course examines the constitutive elements of the human person created in the image and likeness of God. It examines creation, grace, sin, freedom and the communitarian destiny of humankind. The course then will contrast this revealed understanding of persons in community with some of the philosophical understandings of the human person that underlie American individualism.
